Good cool looking HU


from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony Double DIN A/V Receiver With Bluetooth:

Almost returned this HU b/c the interface was iffy, was not satisfied with the XM antenna. Connecting the HU was not too difficult.. Purchased: PAC RP4-CH11 Factory Steering Wheel Integration Adapter, SiriurXM SXV200V1 Tuner, & Sony XAR800C backup camera. Some of the connections was not obvious; I'm very techy computer person. Tech spt was able to solve my connection problems in minutes. BT was a breeze to connect to my Samsung GS3 4.1.1 (none rooted# Call quality very good on both ends. Overview says U can use Pandora via BT; I read some post that it didn't work. Default settings is iPhone via USB #There is LIFE beyond the iPhone#; I changed the settings to Android/Blackberry via BT and it works great; you even get all the information on the HU. I didn't like the HD at first because I was only able to get 2 of the most powerful broadcast stations in Atlanta. Tech Spt informed me I had to connect 3rd blue #antenna) wire to the mix now sound is great on HD radio with plenty of stations. MirorLink- I downloaded the DriveLink app from the Play Store and it was a joke with little options not worth the time. I really like it now that I updated the firmware and installed the modified DriveLink App from XDA Developers on my GS3. I can send DVD video to the back seat monitor and my granddaughter loves it so I'm happy too. I have not tried the USB video and audio options yet. XM presets are not on XM home screen.

dont belive the hype


from Cincinnati, Ohio

Comments about Sony Double DIN A/V Receiver With Bluetooth:

I was so excited when i first heard about this receiver especially when i heard it worked with the Galaxy S3 which i had just purchased. after weeks of bugging my dealer as to when they would have it since release was delayed, i took out a Alpine 910 to put this in. While overall it is a good headunit with great sound the fact that you have Sony's top end headunit with no optional navigation module (which i regretfully found out after i bought the unit) & if you do navigation by mirror-link you cant play Cd's, satellite, radio ect. ... so if your on a long trip all you get is music OR navigation NOT BOTH .... PLUS if your on a long trip the radio does not charge the phone so i have had my phone die on me on trip so i lost navigation ..... I'm amazed that Sony thought this was a great idea.... In theory this is great and should be the direction that car audio is headed shortsightedness and probably a rush to get something out leaves me wishing i would have stuck with alpine and waited for what should be a obvious revision of this unit

Great double din but.


from New Orleans

Comments about Sony Double DIN A/V Receiver With Bluetooth:

This radio sounds great and have a lot of features but the mirror link is lacking. I brought the radio primarily for mirror link so its disappointing. They have 3 big buttons taking up the part of the screen that does nothing. Mirror link should be full screen like the alpine so i think its radio firmware because the alpine uses the same drive link app. It seems that the alpine has more functionality. The touchscreen events are kinda slow and maybe should use Bluetooth for that. other than the mirror link feature being a garbage I'm happy with the radio.

Like to see GPS included


from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Sony Double DIN A/V Receiver With Bluetooth:

I suggest Sony to include the GPS feature - These days GPS is available for less than $150. Sony should include the feature and charge a little more. Don't want to depend on iphone for this feature though iphone and Android integration is nice. People having good old cars like me definitely like to upgrade to GPS DIN. It appears there is not even one company having a quality product. Sony -this can be your market.

XAV701HD Proves to be Worthless


from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Sony Double DIN A/V Receiver With Bluetooth:

I begged my wife for this for my Christmas gift, to replace my Kenwood 5105 deck because of Mirror link. The mirror link app is slow to run, and crashes often, and you have to search the net just to find the app. You only have 2 USB inputs, and you have to choose what to install from the IPod, Phone, USB or the Tom Tom navigation. you cant do all 4. My 5 year old Kenwood came with built in Navigation, and had 2 USB connection for my IPod and my USB. What really makes me upset is that you cant use the Navigation either from Tom Tom or from Mirror link and listen to music at the same time. I travel a lot, and if I am traveling across state lines I can't listen to music and find my way. This is unacceptable! What were the developers thinking? The sound is great, the GUI is great, but the display modes / screen savers don't react to the music playing. I am going to return my unit unless the developers get back to me and or get a update for this before my 30 day return policy runs out. Charles
